Alternator belt diagram for isuzu bighorn


All above is Bull Sxxxt. Isuzu bighorn Alternator belt only drives water pump (fan) and alternator. Size of belt is 17x1000 and its a tight fit onto pulleys so it makes you think its wrong belt, but trust me its not. As if you get 17x1025 or 17x1050 belt you wont get it tight correctly due to not enough adustment on alternator. To change/adjust the belt very simple. Loosen 3 bolts (14mm socket) on power steering pump (its 2 belts that diving power steering and air con), loosen tensioner on p/s pump. Remove those 2 belt - to get access to alternator belt adjustment bolts. There are 2 bolts you will need to loosen One at the bottom of alternator (14mm socket and 25mm extension bar to get it easier) another one is 12mm on tensioner rail. Than adjust tension by screwing 12mm long bolt that mounted across the tensioner rail until you get tension correct. Correct tension is about 68kg. But i do it just to get it nicely tight without too much of sag. REMEMBER DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN the belt as you will crush berings on water pump or alternator.

Need a fan belt changing diagram for an 86 olds cutless supreme


mcdevito75 here, I don:"t think there is a fan belt changeing diagram for your 86" you can order the new belts and mark them Water pump, alternator, power steering. as you order them. The power steering pump is the most difficult to loosen and tighten, you"ll also need a crowbar to hold the various units tight after you install the new belts as the belts can"t be too lose nor too tight. Best bet let your local shop change the belts they last a good while and you have the piece of mind all is adjusted correct.

Loosen two pivot bolts on back of Power steering pump. Loosen pivot bolt on front top of P/S pump. Loosen adj lock bolt on bottom front of P/S pump, now loosen adj bolt on bottom right side of P/S pump. When belt is loose enough, remove it. You may have to loosen it more to get the new belt on.

Replacing water pump on a 1993 jeep grand cherokee


are you sure its water pump? it kind of sounds like your not sure. is there any visable leaks? if no leaks, that noise you hear could be that idler pulley your talking about. what you need to do is loosen the belt(witch there should be a spring loaded tennioner pully that you got to move to get belt off) once you get belt off spin all pulleys that the belt runs on and see if there noisey, or excessively loose, even fan blade, if fan blade moves alot back and forth than its time to replace water pump( fan is bolted to water pump),( it will move a little thats normal) i'am betting its not the pump, its most likely one of them idler pulleys. now if you need a belt routing diagram, advance auto, autozone, or any other major auto parts stores have web sites you can go on to get one, or you can get one from your local auto parts store, sense you will have to go there for a part any how. if you need anymore help just ask, i'll help you as much as i can. good luck.
